Lunch: Grabbed a quick slice from Mauro's Pizza (downtown Hollywood). Mauro's is easily one of the best NY Style pizza spots you will find in South Florida. They also serve huge slices for $2.50. This place is worth the trip. The bar next door, PRL has a great beer selection.
Dinner: I stopped off at Tarks (Dania Beach) for some steamed clams and shrimp on the "bar-b". Unfortunately, I had no room for any clam bellies or gator bites this time.
Lunch: I decided to pay another visit to Chowdown Grill. (Surfside) The octopus was still on the special board but I opted to try some of the small plate daily specials instead. First up was an heirloom tomato salad served with pickled radish and pesto. I followed that with cold sesame noodles served with a very light peanut sauce. Next was a scallion pancake with hoisin sauce which reminded me of a fresh pretzel. I finished with a plate of cured salmon. I enjoyed the freshness and flavors of each dish.
Look out for some duck specials in the near future including duck confit buns.
Dinner: Another great slice, okay two great slices at Mauro's.
